If I were to rank them by percentage of easiness in getting interview
I'd say
Citizen (100%)
Green Card (95%)
J1 (30%)
H1 (25%)

Note; these percentage are just my speculation and I have no statistical or references for that.

Yes, they hold the same weight but citizenship gives us a little extra advantage.

But how are they even able to differentiate? They ask for social security numbers, which both have..

Unless they ask for copies of passports..
